Item: Jury convicts ex-Ill. Gov. Blagojevich at retrial/Michael Tarm, AP
More Info: Rod Blagojevich, who rode his talkative everyman image to two terms as Illinois governor before scandal made him a national punch line, was convicted Monday of a wide range of corruption charges, including the incendiary allegation that he tried to sell or trade President Barack Obama's Senate seat. The verdict was a bitter defeat for Blagojevich, who had spent 2 1/2 years professing his innocence on reality TV shows and later on the witness stand.
Question: Does anyone outside of Chicago and Illinois care about Blagojevich any more?
